Bündchen, who announced her retirement from the runway in 2014, continued to reign over Forbes’s annual earnings list, banking $30.5 million in the year from June 2015 to May 2016, due in large part to lucrative fashion deals with brands like Chanel and Carolina Herrera, as well as sales from her own lingerie and skincare line.

Bündchen easily trumped her nearest competitor, Adriana Lima, her fellow countrywoman.

The 35-year-old Brazilian supermodel came in a distant second with $10.5 million in earnings.

Kim Kardashian‘s half-sister Kendall Jenner is tied with Karlie Kloss for third place with $10 million, while another social media favorite, Gigi Hadid, made her debut on the countdown, at No. 5, sharing the spot with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley with $9 million.

Others featured in the top 20 include Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne, and Lily Aldridge, and together they boast 200 million followers on Instagram.

The 20 models earned a combined $150 million between June 1, 2015 and June 1, 2016. The results included income from cosmetics, fragrance and other contracts and were based on interviews with managers, agents and brand executives.

Miguel keeps things simple in the black-and-white cinematic clip, which premiered on YouTube earlier this week.

It begins with Miguel leaving a party while at another place, his on-screen love interest, played by Sports Illustrated model Gigi Hadid, is seen leaving her hotel room.

The two walk through the streets and eventually meet on a beach, where they smile, laugh and spend the rest of the day together.

“Simple Things” appears in Girls Volume 2: All Adventurous Women Do…, the soundtrack album that also features songs by Lily Allen, Beckand Jenny Lewis, among others.

Miguel is currently working on his next studio album, which he expects to release this fall. The new record, his third studio effort, will serve as the follow-up to 2012’s critically acclaimed “Kaleidoscope Dream.”
